Of the Images of the fixed Behenian Stars

But now for the operations of the fixed stars, according to Hermes opinion, under the head of Algol [Algol] , they made an imagewhose Figure was the head of a man with a bloody neck; they report that it bestoweth good success to Petitions, and makethhim who carrieth it bold and magnanimous, and preserveth the members of the body sound: also it helpeth against Witchcraft,and reflecteth evil indeavors and wicked incantations upon our adversaries.
Under the constellation of the Pleiades,they made the image of a little Virgin, or the Figure of a Lamp; its reported to increase the light of the eyes, to assemble Spirits,to raise Winds, to reveal secret and hidden things:
Under Adlebora, [Aldebaran] they made an image after the likeness of God, or of a flying man; it giveth riches and honor:
Under the Goat [Capella] they made an image, the Figure of which was, as it were, a man willing to make himself merry with musical instruments; it maketh him who carrieth it acceptable, honored and exaltedbefore Kings and Princes; and helpeth the pain of the teeth:

Under the Heart of Leo, [Regulus] they made the image of a Lion or Cat, or the Figure of an honorable Person sitting in a Chair; it rendretb a mantemperate, appeaseth wrath, and giveth favour:
Under the tail of Ursa Major [Alkaid] they made the image of a pensive Man, or of a Bull, or the Figure of a Calf; it availeth against incantations, and maketh him who carrieth it secure in his travels:
Under the wing of Corvus [Gieneh/Algorab] they made the image of a Raven, or Snake, or of a black Man cloathed in black; this maketh a mancholerick, bold, couragious, full of thoughts, a backbiter, and causeth naughty dreams; also it giveth the power of driving awayevil spirits, and of gathering them together; it is profitable against the malice of Men, Devils and Winds:
Under the Spike [Spica] they made the image of a Bird, or of a man laden with Merchandize; it conferreth riches, and maketh one overcome contentions, it taketh away scarcity and mischief:
Under Alchameth [Arcturus] they made the image of an Horse or Wolf, or the Figure of a man dancing; it is good against Feavers, it astringeth and retaineth the bloud:
Under Elphrya, [Alphecca] they made the image of an Hen, or of a man crowned and advanced; it bestoweth the good will and love of men, and giveth chastity.
Under the Heart of Scorpio [Antares] they made the image of a man armed, and with a coat of Male, or the Figure of a Scorpion; it giveth understanding and memory, it maketh a good colour, and aideth against evil spirits, and driveth them away, and bindeth them:
Under the Vulture, [Vega] they made the image of a Vulture or Hen, or of a traveller; it maketh a man magnanimous and proud, it giveth power over devils and beasts.
Under the tail of Capricorn [Deneb Algedi] they made the image of an Hart, or Goate, or of an angryman; it bestoweth prosperity, and increaseth wrath.
